Glacier Hiking and Ice Climbing - A Highlight of Our Trip
, Jul 2022
One of the highlights of our trip! We did glacier hiking and ice climbing with Boris on Solheimajokull. Boris was an amazing guide, explaining to us in just the right amount of detail about glaciers. The trail was done with utmost professionalism. Whilst my husband and I were new to ice climbing, we felt completely safe, and got the chance to try two climbs at different locations. We also appreciated the small group size of 5 people (compared to other tours where there seemed to be 10-15 people). Would highly recommend this experience to others looking for a bit of adventure!
Great adventure!

We had a great experience going ice climbing for the first time with Hang, our guide. We suited up and walked out to the glacier, where there are some incredible views. Our group was small - 7 total, including 4 of us. We learned how to use our gear and how to climb. Everyone was able to make it to the top and have as many turns as they liked. We also learned a ton about Iceland and the glaciers. Hang made sure to keep us safe as well as give us a personalized experience according to our abilities and needs. Amazing time!
Short and quick climb

It is massively oversold and very disappointing. We walked on the glacier for about half an hour before stopping while the guide was setting up the ropes. Then he showed us how to climb and once the first of us was on the ice, he started explaining how to get down, shouting from the bottom of the ice wall. Basically, an educated guess on ice climbing and descent. Once you climb up and somehow manage to get down, you have nothing to do while all the others in the group complete their climb. Another 30 minutes to get back to your car.
First time ice climbers on beautiful Sólheimajökull

Sam was an amazing glacier guide; very knowledgeable and made our experience fun and comfortable! Having never ice climbed before, we weren’t quite sure what to expect, but Sam encouraged us and made us feel safe. Sólheimajökull is beautiful and we were so glad that we had the opportunity to do this on our first trip to Iceland.

This was by far the highlight of our trip! A must for those who like adventure. What a way to see Iceland close up.
